Channel Matching (CM) google
A group of transition probability functions form a Shannon’s channel whereas a group of truth functions form a semantic channel. Label learning is to let semantic channels match Shannon’s channels and label selection is to let Shannon’s channels match semantic channels. The Channel Matching (CM) algorithm is provided for multi-label classification. This algorithm adheres to maximum semantic information criterion which is compatible with maximum likelihood criterion and regularized least squares criterion. If samples are very large, we can directly convert Shannon’s channels into semantic channels by the third kind of Bayes’ theorem; otherwise, we can train truth functions with parameters by sampling distributions. A label may be a Boolean function of some atomic labels. For simplifying learning, we may only obtain the truth functions of some atomic label. For a given label, instances are divided into three kinds (positive, negative, and unclear) instead of two kinds as in popular studies so that the problem with binary relevance is avoided. For each instance, the classifier selects a compound label with most semantic information or richest connotation. As a predictive model, the semantic channel does not change with the prior probability distribution (source) of instances. It still works when the source is changed. The classifier changes with the source, and hence can overcome class-imbalance problem. It is shown that the old population’s increasing will change the classifier for label ‘Old’ and has been impelling the semantic evolution of ‘Old’. The CM iteration algorithm for unseen instance classification is introduced. …

Deep Hyperalignment (DHA) google
This paper proposes Deep Hyperalignment (DHA) as a regularized, deep extension, scalable Hyperalignment (HA) method, which is well-suited for applying functional alignment to fMRI datasets with nonlinearity, high-dimensionality (broad ROI), and a large number of subjects. Unlink previous methods, DHA is not limited by a restricted fixed kernel function. Further, it uses a parametric approach, rank-$m$ Singular Value Decomposition (SVD), and stochastic gradient descent for optimization. Therefore, DHA has a suitable time complexity for large datasets, and DHA does not require the training data when it computes the functional alignment for a new subject. Experimental studies on multi-subject fMRI analysis confirm that the DHA method achieves superior performance to other state-of-the-art HA algorithms. …

MLPerf google
The MLPerf effort aims to build a common set of benchmarks that enables the machine learning (ML) field to measure system performance for both training and inference from mobile devices to cloud services. We believe that a widely accepted benchmark suite will benefit the entire community, including researchers, developers, builders of machine learning frameworks, cloud service providers, hardware manufacturers, application providers, and end users. …
